I'm taking on The Great York Walk, a challenge walking event that helps raise funds for Mentally Fit York at the University of York. Mental ill-health doesn't discriminate and right now, mental health awareness and outreach has never been more important as the social implications of coronavirus begin to unravel. So, together with a group of YUSU reps and alongside many other teams across the uni, I'm going to be counting my daily steps for the next three months (10th May - 31st July) to contribute to a 25,000 mile walking goal. I myself am aiming to walk over 300km over the next 12 weeks and all money raised will go to Mentally Fit York.
Please donate anything you can to help my target and improve mental health in York and beyond! :)
My walk will be in aid of Mentally Fit York, which will promote good mental health on a local, national and international scale. Your support will be used to fund initiatives such as 24/7 mental health support for York students and research projects to further our understanding of mental health issues and the barriers to accessing support services.
Your support may also go towards providing suicide prevention training, Mental Health Nursing Scholarships or it could contribute to a range of other initiatives which are decided by an expert panel of mental health and wellbeing researchers, practitioners and advocates.
